VIDEOCART SEEKS TO ENFORCE IRI AGREEMENT

 CHICAGO, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- VideOcart announced today that it has filed a motion to enforce a settlement in a suit between Information Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: IRIC), and VideOcart, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: VCRT). The motion seeks to have the court enforce an oral agreement reached between Gian Fulgoni, chairman and CEO of Information Resources, Inc., and Ronald E. Spears, chairman and CEO of VideOcart, Inc., in the settlement of all disputes between the companies regarding a non-competition clause existing in a series of 1991 agreements between the companies.
 The non-competition clause was originally the subject of a demand for arbitration filed by VideOcart, Inc., in September concerning an Information Resources, Inc., and Catalina Marketing, Inc. (NYSE: POS), joint venture. Information Resources, Inc., later filed in Delaware for a declaratory judgment that the agreements had terminated.
 Spears commented, "We feel strongly that the subject of IRI's lawsuit was appropriately resolved by the CEOs of the two companies. Regrettably, IRI later reneged on their agreement. Oral agreements to settle lawsuits are commonly enforced by the courts, and we are asking that the Delaware judge recognize the validity of the oral agreement in this case."
